Katie Woods is a vet. She’s forty-one, divorced and doesn’t think she’ll be able to find a new lover. She’s over the hill, right? When she finds an injured cougar on her door step, cages him and returns later to find a hunk of a man in the cage, she might just change her mind. Despite the fact that he looks like he just got out of college and a bunch of real scary ladies show up to help her. Seems like when she got the cougar…man into the cage, he scratch her and now she’s got a paw and some wicked looking teeth. OOPS is here to help her to handle her change and the man she now has to help. He’s lost his memory and doesn’t know how or why he ended up at Katie’s place. With Wanda, Nina, Marty and Casey in her corner she should manage. But what if she not only turns into a cougar herself but becomes a cougar when her hormones go out of control!
This is a real rollercoaster of a story. Dakota Cassidy gives her readers a wild ride. I enjoyed the characters and the premise of this story. This is the first of the Accidental books that I have read and it is a stand-alone story. I had no trouble following the plot or connecting with the other characters. I had to feel sorry for Katie as she had returned to this town and the townspeople were not very friendly towards her. They were a suspicious lot. Now with the upheaval in her life and the arrival of the four very strange women, things were not looking better. I am sure that fans of this series have already devoured this next installment and have enjoyed it. Personally, there was one little thing that stopped me from fully enjoying this book and that was the dialogue. It seemed that everyone was vying to spit out the best and wittiest comments. I was almost dizzy with the bantering and the back and forth volleying of verbal insults and comments. If it had only been one or two persons it would have been better. Still, the love scenes are good, the plot is good and generally it is a good story.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
